MINIMUS - THE MOUSE THAT MADE LATIN COOL

http://www.minimus-etc.co.uk/

Minimus: Starting out in Latin is a unique course for 7-10 year olds, providing a lively introduction to the Latin language and the culture of Roman Britain with a highly illustrated mix of comic strips, stories and myths. Minimus Secundus continues the course up to 13. Both books, along with teachers' resource books and audiocassettes, are published by Cambridge University Press.

The course centres on a real family who lived at Vindolanda in 100AD: Flavius, the fort commander, his wife Lepidina, their three children, assorted household slaves, their cat Vibrissa - and Minimus the mouse! It features many of the artefacts and writing tablets from the Vindolanda excavations.

There is full support for the non-specialist teacher in the Teacher's Resource book and via Inset training. Recommended by Rose-Marie Smith, Long Furlong Primary School.
